How to link a pic stored in Bitbucket?
« on: October 13, 2018, 09:20:34 AM »
Hi! I couldn't find a working solution for this one.
- Pic file stored in Bitbucket/Mercurial.
- Want to link it into a forum post (BBCODE or else). Not just as a download link (which works) but displaying the file's content.
Should be doable in GitHub, though.

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

The image needs to be hosted on an external site.  Depending on the resolution of the image (900x900px maximum), you may need to link a thumbnail.

Then use the [img] tags to embed the image in the forums.  Hint:  Press the little mona lisa button just above the smilies when you are making a reply.

Can also use [img width=], for displaying a high resolution image at a specified width (or height=).
